start happy any day!

Make morning awesome with great food to set the stage right for the rest of the day. Breakfast is about more than nutrition—it’s a happy thing that you can do for yourself and those in your home. So bite by bite, make breakfast the best meal of the day.

While ready-to-go options like cereal, oatmeal and yogurt are wholesome timesavers, it never hurts to branch out. With the ideas and recipes in this book, you might not even need to set the alarm very much earlier. Who has time for breakfast? You do—so make the morning meal a priority from now on and just enjoy.

Start-Happy Breakfast Tips

Don’t let the morning rush keep you from eating a wholesome, delicious breakfast. Here are some hints on how to make the day start out right.

Make a list before you grocery shop. Half of the breakfast battle is remembering to stock your kitchen with quick and easy breakfast options and ingredients for recipes that you like.

Take a few minutes to gain a few minutes. Everyone tends to be short on time in the morning, so take a few minutes to pull together breakfast the night before. Think about what you would like to eat and leave it handy on the counter or ready to go in the refrigerator.

Drink your breakfast—and not just coffee! Try one of the delicious smoothies—there are many yummy options, like Raspberry-Oatmeal Smoothies. It’s just one of many great choices, whether you’re eating in or running out the door.

Bake ahead for delicious options. Make a batch of muffins or a quick bread loaf and wrap individual portions to grab when you’re in a hurry. Oatmeal–Whole Wheat–Blueberry Muffins, and Easy Walnut Bread, are both good choices.

Think convenience or finger foods. A bowl of cereal is a great healthful option any morning, but when you’re really rushed, granola bars or yogurt fit the occasion. Better yet, try dressed-up granola bars, like Blueberry-Ricotta Granola Bars, or Strawberry-Chocolate Granola bars.

Let the sun shine in on your morning! When you sit down for breakfast, open the curtains and enjoy some sunlight. It will make you feel alert and will brighten the morning. Add some relaxing music while you eat, and you’re on the way to a beautiful day!

Start Happy on a Leisurely Morning

When the week is over and everyone’s in less of a rush, brunch offers a welcome change of pace. Family and friends can get together early in the day—but not too early!—to relax, have a great meal, and then continue the day with some nice memories of the visit. Brunch fare is often hearty but easy to make ahead of time, and it’s easy to serve either in a casual buffet style or in a more formal setting.

Plan ahead for a variety of foods that include one or two main dishes, fresh fruit and/or vegetable salads and a choice of sweet and/or savory breads. You can keep the beverages simple with coffee, tea and juices. Or for fun, why not serve some festive mimosas for a change?

Start-Happy Brunch Tips

Hosting a brunch can be easy and fun if you just do a bit of planning. Here are some tips that might give you a head start on making the occasion leisurely for both you and your guests.

Write your menu down so that you can check items off as you get things ready.

Choose foods that can be served at room temperature whenever possible. The main dish for a brunch is often the only food that truly needs to be served warm.

Wash and cut all produce ahead of time, except fruits that will discolor (like apples, bananas and pears). Store in separate bags or containers. This can be done the day before the event.

Cook any sausage or other ingredients that must be precooked for inclusion in a brunch casserole. Store in separate containers.

For large amounts, uncooked egg mixtures can be mixed up, covered and refrigerated. Whisk or stir before using.

Make juices or bases for beverage mixtures; cover and refrigerate. Don’t stir in last-minute additions, such as carbonated beverages or alcohol, until ready to serve.

Prepare the coffeemaker so that it’s ready to start in the morning.

Set the table with your centerpiece, and gather serving dishes and utensils.
